Uterus prolapse is a condition, faced by a lot of women, in which the muscles and ligaments around the uterus weaken. Most of the time this happens because of pregnancy, childbirth, or sometimes due to difficult labor and delivery. This condition could also be the result of aging. As women age and with a natural loss of the hormone estrogen, their uterus sometimes drops into the vaginal canal and it is known as a prolapsed uterus. The uterus is a very important part of our body as it separates the bladder from the rectum. Therefore any problem in the uterus can lead to issues like constipation, heaviness in the lower abdomen, difficulty in passing urine, and pain.
Nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar, who shares health and fitness-related posts regularly on Instagram, has suggested some tips to support your uterus.
